Snowed In

This four inches of snow has us snowed in today so I thought that I would try my hand at posting pictures and doing a bit of an intro after nearly four years. The above pics are from Feb. 2013, the day I drug the Nova out of storage after 23 years. I will work on rotating the pics. More to come.

Talking

A bit of the back story. I found this car for sale in the paper when I lived in Macon, Ga. Remember when that was how you looked for used cars? I was 17 at the time. It had a new black paint job, 300hp 327, Saginaw 4 speed and 3:73 12 bolt rear. I test drove it and fell in love. Still in high school and working part time I didn't have the $900.00 asking price so I offered to pay him $100.00 every payday and he could keep the car until it was paid off. He let me take the car and he kept the title until I paid him off. Try that now!

I drove the Nova until I went in the Army 1976, then sold it to one of my brothers on the condition that I got first option to buy it back. He died in 79 and the car came back to me. It was sold back and forth between myself and one of my other brothers until around 1982 when I got it repainted, put a set of Keystone Raiders on it and daily drove it for a few years. It has been threw a few motors and countless transmissions.

Around 1991 my old Nova was getting a bit ratty and I refused to drive it that way so I parked it in a relative's basement. It eventually got moved to North Georgia where I now live. It has been stored indoors since parked.

Fast forward to 2012 and I retired, built a shop and started on the restoration/restomod.

Thanks for the comments guys. The engine is a small journal 327 bored .060 with a Comp Cams 268h cam and flat top pistons. Nothing wild, but enough to have some fun with. More pics soon.

Thanks utterson. The car was originally Royal Plum, but it was black when I bought it. I not a purple kind of guy so I was really unsure about going with the original color. I love it. It is base coat clear coat and I have wet sanded to 2500 grit. At this point I have not done the final polish and buff. I love this color. Please excuse the rotation of the pics.

Sentimental Value

Welcome to the site and really cool story-Sounds like you are appreciating this car just as much now as when you were 17. These are the stories we all like to see.

My younger brother is restoring a 68 Camaro right now that my oldest brother bought when he was 18.....all 3 of us possessed the car at one time or another


Keep up the good work-neat retirement project!!!

I let my grandsons put new door handles on the Nova a while back, closely supervised of course. They love when they get to help on the car.
